  • Sunflower Montessori provides an education based on the philosophy of Maria Montessori for children from age 3 months through the eighth grade.
  • Starting from our original school in 1985, we have grown to 25 classrooms at 3 locations.
  • Although we are large for a Montessori school, our classrooms are structured much the same way as single room schools that employ the Montessori Method.
  • Montessori on the Lake school includes an Infant Center, Toddler/Two's, Children's House (Preschool), Kindergarten, Elementary, and Middle School programs.
  • Our staff believes much work needs to be done in the Montessori community to attain the goals envisioned by Maria Montessori.
  • Her vision believed that World Peace begins with education and to reach that goal we must provide a respectful and nurturing environment for all children of the world to grow into effective and forward thinking citizens of the world.
  • We take great pride in monitoring the progress of our students after they leave our school.
  • We are glad to have been a part of their cosmic curriculum.
  • Until the advent of Charter schools, the educational establishment was skeptical of the Montessori method of education.
  • Despite this, Montessori is steadily gaining in popularity. The nation is experiencing a Montessori Renaissance, and with good reason.
  • Montessori education works in practice because it is founded in sound educational philosophy.
